The programs of study are designed to be completed in thirty six (36) weeks. Students can take a maximum of fifty four (54) weeks to complete their program. Satisfactory progress is revised at 25% of the program length and the student must obtain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 1.5 and completed 67% of the credits attempted in that time, and maintain satisfactory attendance. Another satisfactory progress is performed at the middle of the program and the student must obtain a minimum GPA of 1.5 and completed 67% of the credits attempted in that time and maintain satisfactory attendance. At the end of the program the student must have achieved a grade point average of at least 2.0 and completed 100% of the credits attempted in that program. If a student does not meet the satisfactory progress requirements at the end of the middle of the program the student will be placed on probation for six (6) weeks.
The School Director will grant the probation just once and will notify the student in writing. The student will be dismissed if after the six weeks probation period he/she does not meet the required satisfactory progress requirements. The School Director will notify the student in writing about the fulfillment of the required academic achievement. If after the six weeks probation period the student meets the satisfactory progress required, the School Director will arrange the reinstatement to its non-probatory condition, voiding the probatory term. The maximum time limit given to a student to complete their program is 1.5 times the length of the program. The student not meeting these criteria will be terminated for not making satisfactory progress.
STANDARD OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS FOR VA STUDENTS

If the VA student’s CGPA is still below 2.0 at the end of the second consecutive term of probation, the student’s VA educational benefits will be terminated.
